Description

Finally a bench-top, high efficiency gas-fired heating system dedicated solely to the purpose of evaporating sap and finishing syrup. Smoky Lake Maple Products is the first to bring you a sealed combustion propane fueled burner that has the ability to connect to a vent or a chimney.
 
The multiple air-cooled turbo jet burners, when on high fire, are able to bring your raw sap up to a full boil in less than in less than 8 minutes, and the included regulator allows you to throttle the heat back to the perfect setting to maintain your temperature all day long. The 2′ x 4′ version is able to bring 40 gallons of finished syrup to bottling temperature in 20 minutes.
 
Though chimney venting is not required with this unit, it is recommended when using the heater in a confined space for extended periods of time.
 
Fully insulated with ceramic fiber insulation, the heat is directed into your pan, not allowed to spill into the room and be wasted.
The burners produce about 75,000 btus per nozzle. They use high pressure, 20psi.
 

Premium, Stainless Steel Divided Pan

The handcrafted, mirror finish stainless steel pan is the same premium quality that we are known for. We use high grade 22ga stainless steel which enables more efficient heat transfer from the fire to the sap compared to our competitor’s thicker stainless steel. Two continuous flow dividers are formed into the structure of the pan, NOT tacked into place as an afterthought. The pan profile includes full-length handles which offers easy maneuverability and increased strength. A thermometer port with 3″ dial thermometer and a stainless steel draw-off valve are also included.

Fuel Efficiency

The 2′ x 4′ Gas fired burner system will consume about 9 lbs of LP per hour at a moderate rate of fire. At this rate the pan will be evaporating around 10–12 gallons per hour.  This is a very efficient way to boil sap with gas!

On maximum fire, the 5 burners on the 2′ x 4′  burner set are capable of consuming up to 16 lbs of LP at which rate the evaporation rate increases disproportionately to about 15 gph.  Moderation and fine tuning are important if you’re using this system as your primary evaporator.  A pressure gauge on the burner manifold makes this quite easy.  Likewise, a marginally lower firing rate will be more fuel efficient, but with a slightly lower evaporation rate.
